Truth, Love, Solution

image

The most powerful thing on the planet is love.

I’ve never found that loving more hasn’t made any situation, any problem, better.

Loving the human being that I am and loving others has proven to be the thing that cuts through all fear and doubt.

Love is what connects us all.

Love is the truth of our being.

Love more today without needy attachment, without expectations.

Love freely with all that you are.

It’s always the solution.

Always.

Teaching Angels To Fly

image

In the world of recovery, as with my job and with my personal life in the program, people often come and go into my life.

I take women under my wing.

I like to say that I teach angels how to fly.

I help them put on the training wheels and give them a little push.

Some touch my heart more than others.

Instead of focusing on the painful goodbyes, I focus on the beauty and light they shed in my life during the brief time I had them with me.

They each bring something unique with them and leave me with sacred memories.

One in particular is out there suffering right now and I cannot help her because the only help she needs can come from her connection with her creator.

A few days ago we were laughing and having fun being silly and then next thing I know she is lost to this disease and gone.

Every time I have the memory of the last time I saw her face flash before me in my mind, so broken and so lost, I pray for her and hope that someday she follows the light to guide her home.

I love you Liz.

Try This…

Rise above negativity and drama.

When someone you love is suffering, point out the positive in their life, when they can’t do it on their own.

Allow someone else to have the last word.

Be okay with the idea of not knowing what’s best for anyone else and allow them their own experience.

Smile at people you pass on the street.

Ask someone else how they are doing and listen to their response.

Do something kind for someone else without anyone ever knowing it was you.

Don’t take yourself, others and life so seriously.

Find the humor in things and laugh at it all.

Love the people in front of you the best you can.

Tell the ones you love how much you love them while you can.

Kiss and hug as many people as humanly possible.

Thank the universe for another day alive on this planet.

Friends?

I used to need specific friends in my life. I didn’t know why I loved having them around because I never took a look at why that was.

I just needed them.

I wasn’t conscious of the fact that it was usually people in my life that made me feel a certain way. It could’ve been that they made me feel safe, wanted, needed or better about myself.

Any or all of those things would do.

The point is, I kept them around to get something I needed, unknowingly.

I thought they were good for me.

I thought for the most part, they helped me.

So when they were actually harming me, I couldn’t see it.

Sometimes it was as subtle as constant manipulative influence through harmful advice or opinions.

Sometimes it wasn’t so subtle like lashing out when they didn’t get their way or just dropping me when they had something else that was more important to them.

Even though when they felt scared that someone else in my life may have been threatening their relationship with me, and they would manipulate the situation, they may or may not have been conscious to it.

Neither was I.

Did they honestly have my best interest at heart?

Or were they just unaware of what they were doing, like I was.

I would either just get over it or make excuses to myself, just so I didn’t have to loose them.

Because I could imagine my life without them.

In the same way I needed them for something I was getting out of it, they were doing the same thing.

Today through relying on God instead of people and actively working on doing all things with love, I can love others without needing them.

I can see it in others when they may be saying or doing things that could harm me because I can see it in myself.

Gratitude

I am grateful for:

The awkwardness of first kisses
Baby blue eyes
Love songs
Dinner’s for two
Trying new food with someone I trust
Kitties
Thoughtful text messages
Hand holding
Sidewalk hugs
The moon by the pool house
Photo memories
Late night talks with giggles
Cuddling
Passionate embraces
Intimate stares
Ocean air and the negative ions from the waves
Your touching my soul
Having known you
Allowing you to know me
Experiencing even a moment of perfection
Friendship
Love
Kindness
Freedom to do it all over again
